Does Anyone Else Get Body Aches When There IBS Is Flaring Up?

A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

I was just wondering does anyone experience body aches and fatigue with IBS? Last night after I went to sleep I started having body aches and was like NO!! I can.t get sick... I did have a flare up yesterday and it when on all day and apparently through the night with the aches and then this morning too. I've been on a light diet since yesterday. Just curious if body aches is normal. I feel so sleepy and run down

you're not alone in that. I have IBS and fibromyalgia so its like which one is making me hurt this time. A LOT of people with IBS find out that they have fibromyalgia too. There's a huge link between IBS and pain issues.

I am 64 years old was diagnosed with Crohn's when I was 16. Many surgeries, tried I think every combination of drugs. I have been in remission with the crohn's for 5 years now. But so much damage that experiance the same sympton's, so now they are saying it is IBS. I feel like I never feel better. If I say I am having a bad gut day, everyone asks if I am having a crohn's flare, I feel like all I do is complain!

Yes I get body aches and fatigue. I also get really bad cramps that are very painful and it doesn't matter what I eat. If I have plans I just don't eat anything.
